Former racehorse, Inchloss, now a star of the Team GB horseball squad took part in the Retraining of Racehorses Grand National Parade on April 6th 2013.
Inchloss, a former racehorse who now resides in Gunthorpe, Nottinghamshire, was chosen by the charity, Retraining of Racehorses, to participate in Aintree’s very popular Grand National parade. Affectionately known as Inch, he is a brilliant example of the successful second careers racehorses can have, having help his owner reach the very top in the sport of horseball.
Inchloss raced 31 times, wining £21,000 in prize money from two wins, but after being adopted by David Worthington, Inchloss turned his talents and became hugely successful at horseball. Now, Inchloss and his owner David are an essential part of Team GB. Thanks to Inch, David was top goal scorer for team GB and 4th overall at the World Cup 2012. In 2013, Inchloss has taken up dressage as well as horseball to add another string to his bow.
The Retraining of Racehorses charity is dedicated to helping racehorses enjoy a second career after retiring from racing.
Inchloss‘ new owner, David Worthington, said:
“I have had Inchloss for about four years now and he has been a really great horse. Inch is an integral part of my success and ability to participate as part of GB in horseball.
“He is such an energetic horse; he really is full of beans and enjoys being kept active. I am lucky to have him.”
